The art of weaving is deeply ingrained in Penan Culture. With skilled hands, strips of coloured material are brought to life and lovingly transformed into beautiful crafts, each telling a unique story.
Rattan has traditionally been the primary raw material for weaving, however it is increasingly scarce. Consequently Helping Hands provides the Penan women with colourful PVC strips as a durable and versatile alternative.
New designs and colour combinations are being developed all the time so the humble rattan basket bag is always bang up to date. What was once a dying trade is now attracting young Penan girls, eager to hone their craft.
